During the past 2-3 years, we have all become acutely aware of the importance of fresh air and good ventilation, but it's only natural that as we move through the autumn months and into the winter, it becomes more difficult to keep windows open throughout the day, and especially at night.
While fresh air ventilation remains important when possible, Louvolite window blinds offer several fabric options that can help to keep your home or workplace fresh and hygienic when the windows are closed.
This is not only a concern relating to COVID-19, but also to other coronaviruses that may be circulating, as well as other airborne pathogens like influenza and rhinoviruses such as the common cold.
Louvolite window blinds are not just a 'face mask' for your windows. By choosing our performance fabrics, you benefit from blinds that actively reduce the presence of viruses and bacteria in the room.
We have two brochures to choose from when looking for fresh and virus-safe window blinds this autumn-winter season:
Both have impressive characteristics in the battle against surface bacteria and viruses - including coronaviruses like the one which causes COVID-19 - making them excellent options in schools, care homes, hospitals, workplaces and hygiene-conscious households.
Louvolite Ultra-Fresh window blinds are treated with an antimicrobial agent that protects against the growth of bacteria, mould, mildew and fungi. The result is a fabric that resists unpleasant odours and stains from mould and mildew.
They're ideal in areas with higher humidity, such as kitchens and bathrooms, as well as places where hygiene is a concern - again including kitchens and other areas, such as dining rooms and canteens, where food and drink are routinely present.
Because of the way the fabric is treated, Louvolite Ultra-Fresh window blinds can be washed without losing their antimicrobial properties, again ideal for care homes, schools and hospitals where regular cleaning is essential.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, research published in the medical journal The Lancet found that coronavirus could survive for around two days on ordinary cloth.
The unique formula used to treat Louvolite CoronaSafe blinds has been independently tested and found to eliminate 99% of coronavirus from the surface of the fabric in just one hour.
This astonishing result means Louvolite CoronaSafe window blinds can deliver peace of mind at home, at work, in care homes, in schools, and across the healthcare and hospitality sectors.
Best of all, they're available as light filtering and blackout blinds in a wide variety of colours and designs, so you don't have to compromise on your interior design scheme in order to benefit from safer surfaces.
